The blueish-greenish top picture is probably my favorite, but I think it's too trendy and would get dated looking fast. As you can see, I'm all over the place when it comes to style...modern or farmhouse...I'm more about the colors. I'd also love some glass-fronted cabinets, but I wouldn't want all of them to have glass.
The only design Joe and I don't care for is pure white. I don't mind cream, though. Truth be told I could live with white cabinets and a black counter top, but again I think that's trendy and my husband really doesn't like that look. We only do a kitchen remodel every 16 years or so, so it needs to have staying power (okay...I'm making that up...we've only remodeled our kitchen once before and it was 16 years ago). We can do some of the work ourselves and my brother-in-law is a carpenter who works for a kitchen/bathroom remodeling company, so he could offer some assistance.
If anyone knows of any blogs with great looking kitchen remodels, especially those done on a budget, please give me the links. Thanks!!
